    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Seattle, WA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Very long and time consuming. They made me come up with a Business Case on a new customer that isn't currently selling on Amazon. I believe I was over qualified, BUT THEY WON'T TELL YOU WHY YOU DIDN'T GET THE JOB?

    Interview Questions

    • Let me a time when..... What was your worst mistake and how did you overcome.... When did you go against your boss.....   Answer Question

    Unix Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters.

    Interview

    It was pretty quick compared to the other ones I have had here. Generally when you apply here it is a slow process. You start with a phone interview with HR. Then if you get past that you will have 2 more in person interviews, usually the same day. One with the lead/manager and after you will have a technical interview with some of the team members. After you get a phone call or email a week or few weeks later with offer or no offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Biggest weakness; best strength; Do you prefer to work in a dynamic environment or static; How to work in a team setting; Where do you see yourself in 5 years.   Answer Question

    Software Developer Co-Op Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rochester, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Rochester, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Note* Maverick Solutions is the middleman and handles the hiring process.

    First I went through a phone interview with Maverick Solutions, it was mostly questions about working on teams and whatnot. Very simple interview.

    I then got set up to be interviewed by Thomson Reuters managers at my school. Interview was really simple too, not technical questions. Mostly questions about my experience and projects I have worked on.

    It's been two weeks since the interview and I haven't heard anything back from them so I am assuming I will not get an offer. I emailed Maverick for a follow up but they weren't very helpful.

    Interview Questions

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I had a first-round interview on my college campus and a second-round interview at the Thomson Reuters campus in Eagan, MN. The first-round was very casual, some behavioral questions, but mostly talking about the job description and what I hoped to get out of an internship with Thomson Reuters. The second-round was a full day consisting of panel presentations by different groups, one interview in which they asked both behavioral and technical questions, and tours of the campus. Lunch was provided.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters.

    Interview

    Applied on LinkedIn. Was contacted by a recruiter a week later who seemed very enthusiastic and gave me hope that I would be right for the role. From there I did a digital interview which was an interesting and impersonal experience. I was invited for an in person interview by a second recruiter, after which I had to drive a few hundred miles to attend. Didn't mind because Ann Arbor is a neat city. In person interview was 3 hours. Met with a couple Team leaders who seemed very professional and friendly, and then shadowed two account representatives who made calls and you could ask questions. After that I met with two managers who described the compensation package and you could ask further questions. Really wish I did not spend 3 hours at their HQ if they felt my experience was not enough, especially because of my long drive.

    TRPS Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters.

    Interview

    No initial phone screen. Resume drop through university/college recruiting center. They chose a handful of interviewees for a superday.

    Two rounds of interviews (all in one day). First round is done in morning and TR employees choose who to interview in the afternoon. After lunch, anyone who wasn't picked goes home.

    Interviews were a mix of behavioral and light technical.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters in September 2016.

    Interview

    I received a phone call from an engineer. The interviewer asked really specific technical computer science concepts. I thought I did okay and got rejected afterwards. He mentioned at the beginning that I have to go there (MN) on my own expenses if I got an onsite interview. At the end, I asked him several questions and the interview ended.
